  • Only Iceland would have a museum dedicated to punk, in a former toilet (the urinals are still there) next door to the office of the country's Prime Minister. From when the Strangler's played a gig...

  • Quirky little museum. You have to pay an entry fee - only takes about 20 minutes at most to go around the whole thing, but the museum showcases some pretty interesting and funky punk pieces. The owner was really lovely and got chatting away to him. There was a few interactive pieces around the museum. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Unique and off-beat little Museum to see in Reykjavík! We happened to pass the entrance to the Icelandic Punk Museum & couldn’t resist seeing what it was about. The museum is set up very creatively in a former public restroom with lots of funky decorated leather jackets and headphones hanging from the ceiling playing the music of the artists featured in the exhibit.
